This Master's program has three options: a single major (30 credits), a major/minor (36 credits), and a double major (42 credits). The MA in Languages, Literatures, Cultures, and Pedagogy is a flexible degree that can provide students with all the courses required for teaching certification in French or Spanish, except for student teaching, which is an undergraduate course of 9 credit hours. Students already certified can take as many as 15 credit hours in World Language pedagogy courses or closely related fields. All students take at least half their courses in the world language and literature of their major field (French or Spanish). This program also prepares students for study at the PhD level in the field of Applied Linguistics.
Major Fields: French and Spanish
Minor Fields: French, Spanish, and Italian Literatures, and Applied Linguistics/Pedagogy.
1. Coursework for MA-LLCP students not seeking certification
A. Single Major (30 credits)
B. Major/Minor (36 credits)
*Note: Students wishing to pursue a minor must apply to the Graduate Studies Committee for admission to the minor. Criteria for admission are the same as those applied to all other degree candidates. Once admitted to the minor, the student must be assigned an advisor who is a member of the graduate faculty. With the advisor's approval, the student will select courses with the goal of a comprehensive program of study.
C. Double Major (42 credits)
2. Coursework for MA-LLCP students on Certification Track
A. Students who wish to obtain teacher certification must take 11 3-credit courses for a total of 34 credits, distributed as follows:
One of the following:
If the student has taken identical courses at the undergraduate level, other appropriate pedagogy courses (e.g. Methods of Teaching Language in Elementary Schools, LLCU 629), may be substituted with the permission of the student's pedagogy advisor. *All recipients of a Graduate Assistantship (TAship, RAship, etc.) are required to take LLCU 623. If a student has completed course work judged equivalent to LLCU 622, 623 or 624 and can provide documentation (e.g., teaching portfolio, syllabi, teaching certificate), substitutions within the field of WL pedagogy may be accepted. **Note: LLCU617 (1-credit) includes a clinical placement in a local school. See the Coordinator of World Languages Education to discuss arrangements for such a placement.
Two courses (6 credits) in Education are required:
*** EDUC 613 includes an 18-hour clinical placement in a local school. In addition to these 31 credits, 3 credit hours of Student Teaching (EDUC 750) must be completed during a fifth semester before obtaining the MA-LLCP Degree. Applications for student teaching are submitted to the Coordinator of World Languages Education in February of the spring semester for all placements in the following academic year (i.e. you would apply in February 2023 for a student teaching placement in fall 2023 or spring 2024).
1) Since not all required courses are offered every semester, careful planning is essential. See the Coordinator of World Languages Education for details.
2) As you complete your pedagogy coursework and student teaching, you will be compiling a teaching portfolio. See required portfolio elements.
B. Comprehensive Examinations
1. The comprehensive examinations in the student's major area or areas (i.e. French and/or Spanish) have a written as well as an oral portion.
2. The examinations in French are based on coursework and on reading lists available online. The examinations in Spanish are based on graduate coursework.
3. Students must submit their finalized reading lists to their GSC language representative by the last day of September (fall exams) or the last day of February (spring exams).
4. Students must submit the Application to take the Master’s Exam to their GSC language representative by the last day of September (fall exams) or the last day of February (spring exams).
